The providers at Cape Care for Women have years of experience caring for female patients with complex gynecologic conditions. Using advanced techniques, we can diagnose and treat patients, often using minimally-invasive surgical techniques that do not require a large incision. Cape Care for Women treats the following conditions:
- Fibroid cysts
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Excessive menstrual bleeding
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Ovarian and cervical cancer
Cape Care for Women uses the da Vinci® S HD™ Surgical System for many of its surgeries. This revolutionary system uses the high-definition cameras and 3-D visualization to achieve even better outcomes. Because this surgery is minimally invasive, patients experience reduced trauma to the body, reduced blood loss, less need for transfusions, less postoperative pain and discomfort, less risk of infection and a shorter hospital stay. Patients recover faster and return to normal daily activities quickly with less scarring. Cape Care for Women uses da Vinci robotic surgery for the following procedures:
- Surgery for uterine or vaginal prolapse
Gynecology Exams and Screenings
The United States Preventive Services Task Force recommends that women receive a regular pelvic exam beginning at age 21, repeating the test every three years until age 29. Screenings may be reduced to five years if you have reached the age of 30, with the addition of a human papillomavirus (HPV) screening. You may choose to stop these tests when you reach 70 if you have had three normal tests in the row and have seen no abnormal results in the previous 10 years.
